Longtime Lawrenceburg U.S. Post Office postmaster Regina Graham, was officially replaced by Todd Duvall Friday afternoon.

Though Duvall has been acting as the officer in charger since May, he was officially sworn in as the new postmaster Friday.

Duvall has 17 years of post office experience, working his way up from a part-time clerk.

Around 30 people were at Duvall’s swearing in ceremony at the Lawrenceburg USPS Office.

As the new Lawrenceburg postmaster, Duvall will supervise 37 employees and 10,000 delivery points for Anderson County and Salvisa.

“He earned this job,” said Tom Adkins USPS manager of operations. “He always steps up to the plate as a supervisor and a postmaster. Having a postmaster of Todd’s caliber makes me proud.”

Susan Wright, postal service customer service relations coordinator for Lexington, has known Duvall since 2007.

“He’s one of those people that’s just a pleasure to know,” Wright said. “He’s the epitome of customer service.”

Prior to the USPS Office in Lawrenceburg, Duvall served as a retail clerk for the post office in Frankfort, a delivery supervisor in Frankfort where he supervised carriers and clerks, officer in charge at the Versailles post office and the postmaster for the Simpsonville area.

Duvall credited his parents Danny and Fay for always supporting him.

He also credited past managers, Tom Adkins, Rosemary Miller, Don Hopper and John Dampier, for providing him with good leadership examples.

Duvall, who has lived in Lawrenceburg since 2004, is married to Christy Duvall.

They have a 2-year-old son together named Ryan.

He said the post office has provided a great standard of living for his family and he excited about this new chapter in his career.

“It’s a great honor,” Duvall said. “We have great employee here and I’m happy to be here.”
